Highly efficient generation of human Cerebral Organoids bypassing embryoid body stage 

Human cerebral organoids (hCOs) are a promising in vitro model that may overcome some of the limitations that currently exist when studying human brain development and disease. Since Lancaster et al. first generated hCOs, efforts have been made to better recapitulate the physiology of the human bra...

Effects of Polystyrene Nanoplastics on the biology of human Neural Stem Cells and human Cerebral Organoids 

Global plastic production has increased exponentially in recent decades and a significant proportion persists in the environment, where it is degraded by mechanical and physical processes giving rise to micro (< 5mm) and nanoplastics (< 1000 nm; NP) and can reach humans through ingestion, inhalatio...

Neurodevelopmental effects of Cypermethrin in human Neural Stem Cells 

The lack of adequate models for the study of developmental neurotoxicity has made difficult to correctly assess the risk and effects of toxic exposure. Despite the large body of results on animals, these studies are costly, time consuming and the results are not always reliable to assess the impact...

RNA-SEQ analysis reveals the implication of Amyloid Precursor Protein (APP) in cell fate specification of human neural Stem Cells by several Signaling Pathways. IBRO Neuroscience Reports 

Numerous studies have focused on the pathophysiological role of amyloid precursor protein (APP) in Alzheimer's disease (AD), being the aggregation of β-amyloid (Aβ) peptide a central event. However, many authors consider that alterations in physiological functions of APP are likely to play a key ro...

SINGLE-CELL sequencing workflow to study cellular composition and cell type specific expression profiles of human Cerebral Organoids 

Human cerebral organoid culture is a technology with immense potential in the areas of developmental neurobiology and neurodegeneration for example to study cell types, mechanisms involved, to discover of new biomarkers, to propose specific therapeutic strategies or to study the effects of compound...

Studying the cellular and molecular evolution of familiar Alzheimer'sdisease using human Cerebral Organoids 

The leading cause of dementia in the elderly is Alzheimer's disease (AD), and its increase is expected in the coming years. The histopathological hallmarks of AD are associated with the presence in brain of neurofibrillary tangles, due to the increase in hyperphosphorylated Tau protein, as well as ...
